Plan Your First EPiServer Site - License Model

Published on 16 September 15
Planning your first EPiServer Site can be little difficult if you have to fit into the latest proposed and released license model. The license model comes with a license agreement. The release of the new license model has left many organizations fuming as they are still struggling to fit into the specific license model. Moreover, if you are a first timer for your EPiServer Site then you can have a tough time.

Why your first EPiServer site license can wear you down?
Firstly, because the new license model comes with a multisite limit, that has been taken away from the license file. So if a developer is using CMS6 then only a single license can be used to run for a single site enterprise. If you want to extend for more than one enterprise then you will have to get a separate license filed for the site.

Secondly, the partner developer license also does not come with any multisite provision. Therefore, you have to install a new license in order to run a new site, although it is in your development environment. The developers can use new license model particularly they are using CMS6. As the partner development license comes for free you can get your license filed within a few minutes. Therefore, in a way license filing for every site in the project becomes easier and manageable.

How you can plan your license model

  • The "automatic license management" comes with several options to choose from. One can select the system actions, like what has to be done if it is detected that the license is about to expire.
  • The option of "Send email" is used to sent mails to specified email addresses to notify that the license validity is about to expire.
  • "Auto update" makes a call to the EPiServer license service that is hosted at the EPiServer in order to pass the current license information like license number or IP Address.
  • The backend system used this information for storage and then generating a new license file to replace the existing the file.
  • The "Download license" has features, which involves communication with the EPiServer license service.
  • The "Active license" key has been received from the EPiServer license system. This feature can also be used for downloading the license file.
  • The "Update license" is used when a site is moved from one server to another. The CMS sends the current license file together with the information about the present IP. Once updated then it generates a new and updated license.
  • "Demo license" in the CMS sends the current IP address for the license service that generates a demo license for the site.
  • In the "Upload license", the user is allowed to upload a license file from a disk and update the site making it ready to use.
  • A rollback is possible through the "Restore License". It enables the user to use backed up license file.
